  1. Sixers Music Update: Congratulations to all our bands who performed so well at this year’s Optimist Festival. All bands received high marks and complimentary remarks from the adjudicators. Special congratulations to our grade 9 and senior bands whose marks were high enough to be invited to Nationals next year. At this point we do not have plans to attend.

Our players and coaches represented the community of Landmark very well. A huge thank you to our coaches. Thanks to the fans for their wonderful support.
  3. School Fundraiser – Thank you to everyone for your support in our school fundraiser. It was a great success and raised some much needed funds to offset the costs of our extra-curricular events.
  4. Grade 7 and 8 reports will be posted on Friday March 17. Grade 9 – 12 reports will be posted on Friday April 21.
  5. Learning Trips. Our teachers continue to look for ways to take the learning outside the school. We have had many exciting learning trips and more to come. Just a reminder for parents that we require permission to be provided through the consent forms on the parent portal. However, If you do need a paper copy of the consent form, please contact the office.
  6. Student Showcase of Learning and Parent-Teacher Conferences will be Thursday, April 27, 2023. We would like to provide further opportunity for parents to see what their child is doing in school. Teachers will have stations set up in their class where students can show parents what they are learning in their courses. Last year we had terrific response from parents about this evening. Please come out and support your child’s learning. Refreshments will be served.

  7. Provincial Student Advisory Council Accepting Applications: The Manitoba government is requesting applications from students across Manitoba to participate on the Manitoba Education and Early Childhood Learning’s Student Advisory Council. Manitoba students are at the heart of our education system and their opinions should play an important role in the decisions that affect them. A priority action in the K to 12 Education Action Plan is the establishment of the Student Advisory Council, which enables students to contribute their voices in shaping our education system in Manitoba. Please share this information with all students in your school/school division who are between the ages of 14 and 18. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2023. Please be advised that parental/legal guardian consent is required for all applicants who are under the age of 18.
